Bob Shupe: @Robikus You will have to wait for Rocket Stove - DIY 2.0
Bob Shupe: @2012Twist I used sheet metal screws to hold the structure together
(strength) and the tape to seal it up.
RonRay: Excellent stove design!
cmathew4: my reg stove works pretty good
Atka59: Why don't people make a catalytic rocket stove that heats a pan by
conduction. That way the exhaust is really smoke free, the pan won't get
all sooty, and the pan won't overheat as the running temp is pretty much
constant. To do it you just remove the vermiculite, seal the top with a
conductive plate leaving a gap between the top of the inner pipe and the
plate, then attach a proper flue alongside the outer barrel venting from
the bottom side wall. That way unburnt gases remain until burnt.
Dan Fall: Are there any actual rules for rocket stove design that would help resolve
combustion chamber sizes? A rocket for camping would be cool (from black
Baby babu: you can make it WAYYY smaller.
MrZapatista44: Thanx for vid !! I made one much smaller out of tin cans .. & a #10 can ..
very common materials ... it works so well !! about 1/4 the fuel is needed
which is what makes Rocket Stoves so amazing ...
Bob Shupe: @ferdinand7004 Thanks!! Im working on perfecting it and hope to produce
free plans someday.
Bob Shupe: @cmathew4 Then use that.
winky4u: very nice video***** I`m trying to make a rocket stove by myself. The stove
itself is made of 2.5 inch thick Promatect-100. I placed it in a 20L old
paint can. I only have to make the skirt yet. (sorry for my english)
malakovich69: Did you say galvanizing burned off? You shouldn't be using galvnized pipe
for anything related to cooking or heating. You're gonna poison your family
Bob Shupe: @fallguy100000 I think the only real rule is that it work well. Outside of
that I think it would have to be what you want it to do. In the case of
imau2ber below, he is not accustomed to handling anything larger than three
inches so Im sure his stove is very small.... if he has one. If you are
planning on doing car camping then size wont matter, you just want it to
work. If you're hiking in someplace then you might want something smaller
or even built on-site and left there.
Bob Shupe: @johnbleeker - Thanks John. I guess I didnt have a choice in a way as I
dont have a yard full of stuff to go and pick through for parts. Maybe some
day... if my wife dies. lol
Bob Shupe: @RonRay Thanks Ron!!
xpez: what is the part that qualifies this as a rocket?
Bob Shupe: @ferdinand7004 Thanks! I really appreciate the positive feedback.
Bob Shupe: Thanks Pyroman. That is HVAC tape but the space between the inner pipe and
outer pipe is filled with kitty litter so the outside doesnt get that hot.
vincentvangro: @malakovich69 YUP,now u can burn off the galvanized pipe but that is
dangerous as well.burnt off or not i'd never use galvanized pipe to cook
with..heck when i build my makeshift blacksmithing forge i never use
galvanized in that either.it's just a foolish and not worth the health
Bert Heideveld: Good Stove burning wel.
pyroman675: thats cool man good boil time to is thats muffler tape. i had furnace tape
but my stove barley got going and it burned off and caught fire but that
tape seems to be holding up to the heat
DrMichael MillerPhD: did you use h v a c silver tape to make those fittings stick together?..
Robikus: Dude, calm down a bit will ya?
Bob Shupe: @nuonnuon Thanks!
forest greenwald: nice stove.....there are lots of folks on youtube building what they call
rocket stoves, but actually they are not designed like the original rocket
stove....a true rocket stove has a double wall insulated burn chamber and
partial lower stovepipe insulated....this is to get a hotter flame inside
the burn chamber, to more completely burn the escaping gases or
smoke....any stove will burn clean to some degree with dry wood, but a true
rocket stove has much less pollution than a single wall stove..
Bob Shupe: @malakovich69 Thanks but this is for outdoor use only as with any open fire.
lopsidedcor: The exhaust leaves in one direction which causes acceleration as described
by the rocket equation
Bob Shupe: @imau2ber How do you figure? Based on the internal dimensions of the
combustion chamber it is about perfect. Additionally, the overall height of
the stove does not match the length of the riser. There is about a 4"
extension on the top to elevate the pot off the stack/riser allowing the
heat to expand and affect the whole bottom of the pot more evenly than the
type that have the pot sitting right on the stack. Thanks for taking time
to watch the vid and comment.
pabbananna: long term no problems with the metal burning through? and careful when
burning the stink off!
a1boywonder: i got a 1 gal can free and about $6 in other parts to build mine
